12 Year Old Oklahoma Girl Shoots Home Intruder
#1
Quote:A 12-year-old Oklahoma girl took extreme measures to protect herself when an unfamiliar man broke into her home last Wednesday. The girl, who was home alone during a day off from school, shot and wounded the home intruder, local NBC affiliate KTEN News reports.

Kendra St. Clair, was home by herself when a man rang the doorbell to her Bryan County, Okla., home. She didn’t answer, so the trespasser walked to the back of the house and kicked open a door. St. Clair called her mother, who advised her to grab the family’s gun and hide, according to an interview she gave to local broadcaster KFOR-TV. Authorities said that the girl found the gun and took shelter in a bathroom closet.

“I was sitting there in the closet, really scared, holding the gun, not knowing what was going to happen,” St. Clair told KFOR-TV.

Good for her.

Hope the young lady knew ahead of time that it was OK to use the gun in this manner.

My youngest is only 3ish but we are already teaching her age appropriate things about situations like this.

Quote:“When I had the gun, I didn’t think I was actually going to have to shoot somebody,” St. Clair told ABC News. “I think it’s going to change me a whole lot, knowing that I can hold my head up high and nothing can hurt me anymore.”

I'm not sure I understand what you mean by this.... in what manner?

Sorry if I was a bit ambiguous. What I meant was, I hope that this young lady - where there were guns in the house - was taught prior to this incident what to do in case of a situation like this.

Granted that you can not prepare for every occasion but I would hope that she would have been taught that is was OK TO USE the firearm in the home for self defense.

I guess my concern is that BEFORE grabbing the firearm, she called her Mom. She did not grab the gun 1st to protect herself. She did not call 911 1st.

I hope I can teach my daughter that it is OK to grab the gun 1st, Call 911 2nd, and if she has time, call me 3rd AFTER she takes a defensible position in the home.

Of course it is possible that she had been told that is was OK to use the gun for self protection......

Ohhh okay, gotcha!

There did seem to be some timing in the article that did not make sense....Evidently it took the guy a long time to kick in the back door as that is when she called her mom, located the gun, and hid....

Which is a good thing. The girl was very brave and did a great job.

(Can you imagine the panic her mom was going through?! Mom had a level head too, to coach her daughter!) Although if I had been mom, I'd have called 911 immediately and had the cops on the way already!)

As a side note....I'd leave my 12 year old alone at home for an hour or two, but not a whole day while I was at work....

I mean, my 12 year old boy is a BIG boy (he's already in men's shoe size 11.5, and he's about 5'8"), and he can handle himself, but its just too much, I think, to expect a child that age to stay home for a long period of time by themselves.

Its a really good thing this situation turned out as good as it did.

Depends on the child. Some 12 year olds are a lot more mature than other 12 year olds. Going back in time I'm sure the further you go back the younger people were left alone and yet here we are, not extinct. We have two kids. One of them, I could see him being left alone when he was 12. The other one; not so much. When I was 12 we were all pretty much roving the neighborhood freely during the summer months and having sleep overs. None of us died.
